Description:14-year-old Watts Davies is a gifted, but unpolished go-kart racer. The untimely death of his mother has left him estranged from his dad, a former International Karting Federation (IKF) champion, just when Watts needs him the most. The town bully is doing his best to keep Watts out of the upcoming IKF Regional Championships. When the current champion, Scott McKenna steps into the picture, it galvanizes Watts and his father to rekindle their relationship, letting Watts enjoy the exhilaration of true teamwork with his hodgepodge crew of friends and one special girl.
